    Broncos Darrent Williams died of single shot

    DENVER (AP) -- An autopsy on the body of Denver Bronco cornerback Darrent Williams shows he had NO drugs and little alcohol in his body at the time he died.

    The Denver Post is reporting the findings, saying Williams died from a single gunshot wound to the neck.

    The autopsy shows Williams had a blood-alcohol level of point-zero-five-one (.051). That's far below the legal limit for driving -- but Williams wasn't.

    He was shot to death while riding in a stretch limousine with friends early New Year's Day after leaving a nightclub.


    Authorities say someone in a nearby car sprayed the limo with 14 rounds. Two other passengers in the limousine were hurt.

      That would be good. And I am praying it does happen.

          • Parole Revoked For Figure In Williams' Case

            Looks like he'll be in there for 180 more days..
            http://cbs4denver.com/broncos/local_...033141140.html

            (CBS4) DENVER Parole has been revoked for the man police called a "person of interest" in the murder of Denver Broncos player Darrent Williams, CBS4 reported Friday.

            Willie Clark was arrested by Denver police shortly after Williams' killing on New Year's Day. He was taken into custody on charged associated with a parole violation, not William's murder.

            A hearing for Clark was held behind closed doors Friday morning.

            A parole board found Clark was in violation of his responsibilities by not living at the home of his grandmother. He was released from prison after serving time for aggravated robbery.

            Clark's attorney said he believes police are trying to pressure Clark into providing information about who may have been involved in the shooting of Williams.

            The parole board's decision means Clark will stay behind bars for another 180 days. He could have been released if he was found not guilty of violating parole during Friday's hearing.

            Clark has not been called a suspect in William's death by police.

            • There definitely is more of a reason for keeping Clark than just him violating his parole. Something must be going on here.

                Evidence Taken from Williams' Case Suspect

                Brian Maass
                Reporting

                (CBS4) DENVER Investigators looking into the murder of Denver Bronco Darrent Williams have now taken evidence from a man they suspect was connected to the killing.

                Police and prosecutors got a court order to get non testimonial evidence from the man. At the same time, the man has been trying to negotiate a deal with prosecutors in the Williams case.

                More than a month after Williams' rented limousine crashed at 11th and Speer, there has not been an arrest in the case.

                The only person connected with the killing is 23-year-old Willie Clark, who has not been charged in connection with the murder, but is jailed on an unrelated parole violation.

                Sources say police suspect Clark and several others were in the white SUV that pulled alongside the Hummer. Investigators believe passengers in the SUV sprayed the limo with bullets.

                CBS4 has learned that a well known Denver lawyer represents another man police believe was in the SUV.

                In recent weeks, multiple sources say the lawyer has been in negotiations with the Denver District Attorney's office, asking for immunity for his client in exchange for testimony against the other men in the SUV.

                For reasons that are unclear, those discussions recently broke down and no deal has been struck.

                Subsequently, police investigators sought and obtained what is known as a rule 41-1 order, allowing them to get hair, saliva samples and fingerprints from the man who investigators suspect was in the Tahoe the morning Williams was murdered.

                Police will examine that evidence to see if they can link the man to the Tahoe and possibly place him at the scene of the murder.

                While CBS4 has both the suspect's name and that of his lawyer, neither name is being used because sources connected to the story have suggested using either name could put the man's safety and the case in jeopardy.

                The lawyer in question declined to comment on our report and the Denver District Attorney's office also declined to comment citing the ongoing investigation.

                • A few minutes ago, Channel 9 basically reported the same thing as Channel 4, but added that there are 3 suspects - Clark, who apparently was driving, the suspect who they are negotiating with, and a 3rd suspect who they cannot find. Kyle Dyer then ask the question if it is fair to assume that the 3rd suspect is the shooter, and the answer by Paula Woodward was yes.

                          Williams' Family Frustrated By Death Investigation
                          (CBS 11 News) FORT WORTH Denver police hope a man arrested and charged with a parole violation will tell what he knows about the death of Denver Broncos player Darrent Williams.

                          The Fort Worth native was shot to death on New Year's morning. No one has been charged with Williams' murder, but leads are mounting.

                          Now the woman who raised Williams is speaking publicly for the first time about the crime.

                          Family members say they're growing increasingly frustrated with the investigation, but with new developments in the case, the family has hope the killer may soon be revealed, so they can have closure.

                          Williams was like a lion on the field. At 5 feet, 8 inches tall and 188 pounds, the Fort Worth native and O.D. Wyatt High School standout was considered small by NFL standards, but to many he was considered to be all heart.

                          "It's just... I don't know what to say, okay? It's just a terrible loss," said he grandmother, Easter Williams.

                          His 70-year-old grandmother, who raised him, has one request: "That whoever did this... that they just pay for it, okay?"

                          And she wants justice for the heirs of his legacy. "For we can have justice that way," said Tierria Leonard, the mother of William's children. "When my kids get older, I can let them know they did get their father's killer or killers."

                          Fans stack tributes, like flowers, on YouTube and MySpace websites while the family looks for signs of an arrest leading to a conviction.

                          "We just want somebody locked up, whoever did it," said family friend Paul Martin.

                          "Not only do we want justice, but we want peace of mind – everybody," said William's cousin, Clifford Williams.

                          At 24, Williams was having a good run. The question remains: who stopped him?

                          "I hope they find the people who did it to him," said another of William's cousin, Stanley Williams.

                          The Broncos have established the Darrent Williams Memorial Grant. It offers $50,000 to organizations in Denver that promote positive alternatives for young people.

                          The Broncos also put up $100,000 of the $102,000 reward money in Williams' murder case.

                              • Bullet sizes similar in shooting deaths of woman, Bronco
                                Killings also linked to jailed gang member

                                Kalonniann Louisa Clark-James was to testify in attempted murder trial.
                                By Charlie Brennan, Rocky Mountain News
                                February 17, 2007

                                An autopsy report released Friday shows a similarity in the size of bullets that killed Kalonniann Louisa Clark-James and Darrent Williams, both shot to death in Denver in cases that remain unsolved.

                                The two deaths are also connected by links to a jailed Denver gang member, Brian Kenneth Hicks.

                                Clark-James was shot twice, once in the head and once in the arm. The shot in her right arm crossed through her body, exited the left side and was not recovered.

                                The "deformed, jacketed, apparently medium-caliber bullet" was recovered from the woman's head wound and given to police investigators, according to her autopsy.

                                The autopsy for Williams, the 24-year-old Denver Broncos cornerback killed early Jan. 1, was released Jan. 30. It showed he was killed by a single "medium-to-large-caliber" bullet that hit him in his neck as he rode in his rented stretch Hummer away from a New Year's Eve party at Denver's Club Safari.

                                Although Williams' autopsy said that medical investigators recovered that projectile's deformed copper casing from his neck, the bullet's core exited his body. Police have not disclosed whether they found it.

                                One law enforcement source who demanded anonymity said the bullets used in the Williams shooting - as many as 14 were fired from a passing 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe - were .40 caliber, which is considered to be a medium-sized projectile.

                                Clark-James was killed the night of Dec. 7, when gunmen broke into her Cherry Creek-area house, demanding money and drugs, according to her husband, Nicholas James.

                                Clark-James, 28, was just a few days away from testifying in Denver in the attempted murder trial of Hicks, a known member of the Crips street gang. He is accused of shooting at her June 12, 2005, at West Ninth Avenue and Acoma Steet shortly after she left Club Safari. That's the same nightspot Williams had been before he was slain.

                                Police have determined the Chevy Tahoe used in the Williams shooting is registered to Hicks. Hicks has been incarcerated on unrelated drug charges since Nov. 9.

                                Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson declined to comment Friday on any links between the Williams and Clark-James cases, but described both as open and active investigations.
